, the governor of michigan, rick der snyder didn't support a bailout but said on face the nation, "if the government wants to do that, that's their option." that's not exactly not option the door and considering that opportunity. again, mr. president, i didn't file this bill in the last two weeks. i originally filed this bill in february of 2011. and it's because detroit isn't, unfortunately, the only municipal or state bankruptcy on the map. states can't formally file bankruptcy but they can essentially go bankrupt in laymen's terms. and detroit isn't the only issue on the map. many states face a horrible fiscal situation as well, like california and illinois. and there is very much the real danger of these states and localities seeking a federal bailout. this bill is about that. it's not about normal federal funding. it's not about the safe and secure rural schools program. it's not about any of that routine stuff. it's about a bailout of a state. it's about a bailout of a municipality or other local jurisdiction. and, of course, detroit, unfortunately, is the most obvious example a
